Thread: The joys of being single

  1. #1

    Default The joys of being single

    Being single is actually a blessing in disguise.
    It seems to be the trend nowadays.

    1. You live for yourself only (freedom)
    2. You are not enslaved to commitments (family with kids)
    3. You can adapt to alternative lifestyles (choices)
    4. You are happy-go-lucky (no worries)

    Have you observed this lately?
    Your comments.

    there are always two sides to a coin

    nothing wrong with seeing one side, so long as you see the other. same goes for anything else

    Well, actually there are three sides to a coin if you think about it.

    ...that's true.. though of course the chances of flipping a "side" instead of a "head" or "tail".. are minimal

    perhaps the "side" could be considered as the grey area, why not?

    I thought "alternative lifestyle", is a gay term usually, no?

    Well I guess it's not so much 'joy' per se, rather be content with it ...

    The downside:
    When your 'needs' arises you don't know who to look for.

    The upside:
    When your 'needs' arises and you know who to look for, there is usually a sea of choices.

    2 hands and legs in agreement.

    2. You are not enslaved to commitments (family with kids)
    3 sides to a coin. It can be a blessing, it can be a curse or it can be half of each. Kinda taking a gamble when a Man/Woman gets married. The union is held together by a very fragile word called 'faith'.

    3. You can adapt to alternative lifestyles (choices)
    There are married men leading secret double-lives as well given all those tabloid news about Batam women and their Singaporean husband + Singapore family thing.

    4. You are happy-go-lucky (no worries)
    Worries stem from the discontentment of oneself. Since this is very subjective (I'd seen happy-go-lucky Fathers and big worrying Singles), I think the answer is best left up to the individual and there's no 1 'stereotype' answer to answer this.

    I take the latter if you don't mind please. Choices are not the problem...(not talking the "commerce" kind) heh. It's when consenting becomes an obligation heheh

    Being single is not bad especially if it is something you choose ( be it for life or for a period of time) I am going 14 yrs now and fine with that. hehe Better then enduring 8 ex g/f to whom two almost broke my bank.

    The worst thing is if you try hard to not be singlish but yet still am...you might have more worst problem then living the life of a single.

    A single man has a sea of choices, just as a single lady does.

    But with the sea of choices of this very basic instinct comes a sea of possible viruses.
    It ultimately depends on how steeled your balls are if you decided to swim in this.... 'sea'.

    getting married and having kids will bring you to a whole new life
    it will give you a new meaning to living

    you will know when you get there

    and like everything in life, it is your choice so choose wisely and manage it once you have made your choice

    If you have experienced life in forming a family (with kids), then I would say your comment is fair. If not...... then I think you have missed out the best things in life. You know what it is?

    There is + +. But ultimately you will find = +

    so sad......hehehe....... good luck in your single life..... there is no turning back time...
